Why, you may ask, don't I keep after this all year? Why don't I just enter everything into Quickbooks and just take my accountant a CD? Believe me, I've tried and, after ten years in business, I'm fairly sure it just isn't going to happen. I've been telling myself that now that I'm not running the Knit Out any more, I'll have time to catch up on this stuff in the summer but I'm not so sure. I've made attempts over the years but so far I've only gotten up to 2004. I have dreams of hiring a bookkeeper and this may be the year that I actually do it. After all, if I want to have a 'big girl' yarn shop, I really should keep up with this stuff, don't you think?

I really love how it came out. So much that I'm thinking that I'll have to do this again even though it was such a lot of work. At least I'll know what I'm up against this time. And I'll know enough to save a skein for myself!!
In other news, Grandma's memorial service is tomorrow so I've been very busy cleaning and getting organized for that. My cousin Martha (actually my mother's first cousin) will be arriving here in the next hour or so and is spending the weekend. Consequently, there has been big house cleaning going on.
I have actually been knitting as well. I have three socks on needles that I'm actively working on (we shall not speak of the ones that are just sitting around like so many knickknacks), a sweater for myself that is not quite up to the armholes and a sweater that I should be sewing up for a customer. There are times when I will sit down and sew up a sweater without even thinking about it and other times that the thought of sewing up makes crazy. I'm trying to get over the crazy and get this thing sewed up because I'm sure my nice customer would like her blankity-blank sweater to wear before spring. So, I guess I'll go be a good little shop owner and get that done. Have a nice weekend everyone!

There was only one year where I had a boyfriend on the actual day and I have to say, the guy gave me a true traditional Valentine's Day from the flowers right on down. It was really nice and a wonderful treat.
I just read the Yarn Harlot's post about V-day and I have to say that she hit the nail right on the head. Check it out if you haven't already.
Today, I feel the love of my friends and family and I hope you all feel my love for you! Remember that romance is over-rated but good solid friends that love you no matter what are what make the world go 'round.
